- Royal Square, St Helier
Every month the tour will be a little different, so expect the unexpected! This is how the character of Jersey was formed in oh... so many different ways. From Royalists & Parliamentarians; Stuarts, Georgians & Victorians; Fishing & cider. These are just a few of the themes. This month we shall look at how St Helier grew over the centuries from a marshy low lying basin surrounded on three sides by steep sided hills to become the islands capital. A castle & a fort defended our capital while a safe harbour was built for Jersey merchants. We will look at how this was all made possible and also spy a few of the remnants to give us a clue how this was made possible.
